This year’s symposium explores the concept of “archeology” from two different perspectives. On the one hand, archaeology as the scientific method of tracing historical beginnings; on the other hand, archeology as the Foucauldian strategy of deconstructing power/signification systems. One may connect the notion of “archaeology” to Nam June Paik’s artistic practice from both perspectives, as it not only embodies the historical beginning of new artistic media, but also an act of inventing what we might call “artistic archeology”.

The symposium Archeology of New Media will address both lines of thought: Nam June Paik’s re-territorialization of new media, as well as the topicality of his artistic archeology as a strategy of deterritorialization.

Gift of Nam June Paik International Symposium #3: Archaeology of New Media takes place on 17 December 2010 at Nam June Paik Art Center in Yongin, Korea.

Gift of Nam June Paik is a series of symposiums that focus on researching, rethinking and re-contextualizing Nam June Paik’s artistic ideas.
